I have been looking for this EVERYWHERE!
Ever since I first read about it, I have wanted to see this. I did a cursory search a few weeks ago, as I do from time to time, and I don't know why the IA version didn't come up on my search. I just stumbled on it today, right here where it's been for years. I need to get chores done so I can sit and watch!! Thank you!!
I typically don't rate videos by quality because with classic video, you can't really control some of the aspects. If the only available copy is rough around the edges, I can't fault the uploader! I'd rather have a lesser quality clip than none at all.

Good animation compilation
I last saw this when it played in theaters in the late 70s, and looked forward to seeing it again.
Good collection of animated shorts, mostly in hand drawn, claymation, and rotoscoping techniques. Represented artists include Loren Bowie, Bernard Palacios, Kathy Rose, Derek Lamb, Steven Lisberger, Marv Newland, Paul Driessen, and Will Vinton ("Mountain Music" and Oscar winning "Closed Mondays" featured).
Unfortunately it looks like a poor quality print was used for the videotape source. There is a lot of film jitter in the first few minutes, and a few of the sequences seem washed out or overexposed, making it difficult to see much, as with Newland's famous "Bambi Meets Godzilla."
Definitely worth a look for what animation was like before computers and CGI took over. My personal favorite is Driessen's "Au Bout Du Fil Cradle" (Cat's Cradle), which involves a spider, I've had its music stuck in my head all these years.
